The last transnational meeting took place in the small town of Salo, located on the connecting line between Finland’s capital Helsinki and Turku.During the meeting we visited the participating school Moision koulu, which captivated us with its equipment and absolute peace even during breaks. In addition to balancing and preparing the final report of the project, we have time to visit the picturesque Finnish countryside and the city of Turku. On our way back we also stopped in Helsinki, where we were most interested in Helsinki Central Library Oodi. Continue reading
A warm welcome between Art and Nature
This time the main theme of the last TPM meeting was ” Recycling and Environment”. On 16/9/2019 the Italian teachers G. Monteleone and A. Perconte landed to Finland.
Everybody arrived according to the scheduled time and Salo offered us a warm welcome with a cooking class. According to what previously agreed, each delegation of the participating countries introduced their traditions by offering a typical regional dish.
Moreover each delegation presented their own city and educational institution to the Moision kuolu also using the multimedia material created during the various phases of the project. Teachers visited the school and appreciated the classes of carpentry, iron working, art and music, and finally the craft class (which includes activities related to the domestic economy). The activity continued at Teijo where the teachers met the artist Tuula Nikulainen with whom they held a workshop experimenting an artistic handicraft made with the use of natural materials.

Palermo. This video shows a global warming effect: flood. It was the 4th of November and during that day there were some victims. The soundtrack “Lascia ch’io pianga la cruda sorte” is taken from the Rinaldo of Handel .
Together for the environment and nature
On 5 June, on the occasion of the “World Environment Day”, our school, in relation to the activity of the Erasmus plus project “SMART: Science Meets Art”, raised students awareness (after the LegaAmbiente and SMART DAY initiatives) to problems relating to global warming by connecting meteorology, nature and art. Through this project the students made videos using photos of different landscapes (sunrises and sunsets) to make them aware of the importance of the ecosystem. Continue reading
On World Environment day we learned about the Marker Wadden,
A new addiction to Dutch nature
The new nature on Marker Wadden is an ideal research area for scientists. Which plants and animals settle here? Which food chains are created? And how do they relate to each other? And above all, does Marker Wadden contribute to the restoration of the Markermeer ecosystem? Continue reading
Let´s celebrate World Environment Day with the beauty of nature´s paradice in these Icelandic photos.
Caring about our planet is a moral obligation
Every year, since June 5, 1972, World Environment Day has ben celebrated. This date was chosen during the first UN conference on the environment, held in Stockholm, during which the “Stockholm Declaration” was established, which defined the twenty-six principles on the rights and responsibility of men towards the environment . This year we are celebrating the environment day on the theme of air pollution and the climate crisis.
The slogan is “Beat air Pollution” or “defeating climate pollution”. It is therefore necessary not only to moderate actions and think more about the planet, but to spread the message as much as possible. Environment Day aims to focus on environmental issues by offering people the opportunity to be active stakeholders in sustainable development.
In our school, thanks to the initiatives of LEGAMBIENTE and the ERASMUS PLUS project “SMART: Science Meets Art”, this awareness became deeper during the course of the school year. On June 5, they also carried out researches, newspaper articles and video galleries on environmental issues, global warming but also on the beauty of our Nature. The opportunity was given to enhance the beauty of nature, through the use of specific Apps, creating a shared class gallery containing all our photos taken during school trips or on particular days of the year and were created then videos with photos of sunrises, sunsets, clouds, flowers to connect meteorology, nature and art. Since last year our school has been committed to the Erasmus plus project which has now come to an end with this final moment linked to our Earth. We need to think of our beloved Earth also through the words of Franklin Delano Roosevelt: “The nation that destroys its own soil destroys itself”.
